Jack--I can't believe you are one month old already! Where has the time gone. Some things about you right now...
You love to be in your swing and take a nap. Daddy and I have vowed to never let the swing be without batteries!
You enjoy being propped up in the boppy pillow while mommy gets ready. I think that it makes you feel like I big boy to be sitting up.
You love to stare at fans--even if they are not on. People tell me that you can't see that far. I don't believe that for a second. You obviously see something up there!
Speaking of what you can see...you love to stare at the TV. I know you have no clue what you are looking at...but you stare! Your favorite thing is when we watch Cardinals games.
You still refuse to sleep anywhere except in your car seat. You refuse to to sleep laying flat. We are working on that, but it's not going so well. Daddy and I hope to have you sleeping in your bed by the time you are two months old.
You are wearing size one diapers (such a big boy) but are still mainly wearing newborn clothes. You can wear some 0-3 months items (especially onesies--shorts/pants are an issue because you don't have a butt to hold them up). You have already outgrown your newborn shoes.
You like to go on walks in your stroller (though it's currently WAY too hot outside to go for a walk.)
You love to take naps on the couch with mom. We have a routine of taking a nap in the morning after daddy leaves for work. It's moms favorite time of the day.
You are starting to smile so much more now. You have a time every morning when you are awake that you just smile at mommy. I'm so glad that I have caught these smiles on camera so that I can share them with daddy.
You are waking up about two times every night to eat. We go to bed sometime between 10 and 11 and then you get up around 3AM to have your diaper changed and to eat. You then go back to sleep and wake up around 6 or 6:30 for another feeding. This is much better than those first nights at home!
You recently started getting cereal in your night time bottle to help with some reflux you were having. We are hoping that this will help you sleep more at night.
You are starting to make noises and sometimes even scare yourself as you make a noise!
You love to lay on your changing table for a few minutes after a diaper change and just look around. Mom loves to talk to you during this time.
You enjoy taking baths and then having lotion put on your arms and legs.
All in all, you are a great little boy. You have added a great deal of joy to my life! Happy one month birthday baby boy! Mommy loves you!
